Description Kobboi 2009-12-27 14:25:09 UTC
Currently trying out the vanilla kernels 2.6.33_rc*. They do not allow me to boot my system using openrc/baselayout-2. More specifically, I am running:

- vanilla-sources-2.6.33_rc2 (tried _rc1 as well)
- openrc-0.6.0
- baselayout-2.0.1

The kernel starts up and the init system takes over, but early in the starting of services the systems stops (kernel itself does not hang though: can change terminals, change keyboard LEDs). I also see the message:

* read: Interrupted system call

I don't have the issue with older kernels (with basically same kernel configuration)

Reproducible: Always

Extra note: probably a kernel bug, because when I start the services interactively, I get the issue 'sooner' in the service startup process. It's probably something that happens (or times out, or...) after a more or less constant amount of time after booting my system.

I created an initramfs with static sash and busybox: no problem, so it must me some kind of openrc/baselayout action going wrong or triggering a kernel bug. Suggestions welcome.

It would help if you posted the init output so we can see where that read failed. It might help to see your kernel config as well.

Not sure how to do that correctly, really. Any tips?

digital camera and some patience? ;)
Comment 7 Kobboi 2010-02-21 23:35:37 UTC
Just wanted to let you that I am currently running 2.6.33_rc8 (with a possibly different configuration than the one I had when logging this issue), with openrc-0.6.0-r1 and baselayout-2.0.1, and without a startup issue. Too bad I'll never know the reason, but I'm closing this bug.
